Leaves a la Carte

This card is the third in a series of cards using the Carte Postal and Leaves a la Carte bundle which is currently available as a Stampin’ Up! Promotion.  This particular layout was inspired by Beate Johns who is amazingly talented and another inspiration to me.  So, thanks Beate, I hope you like my variation. 🙂

With this card I have done a double layer of ink with the wheel to create a shadow effect, the first roll across the card was with Almost Amethyst ink (one of my absolute favourite colours) and then rolled a second time with Chocolate Chip (another favourite) slightly lower and starting a little bit before the card stock.  Hope that made sense, but if not, and if you would like to learn how to do it, please contact me.
